For pitching, that is, and that's why both starters in today's Brewers-Padres matchup make Paul's recommended lineup.

With DraftKings’ acquisition of DraftStreet, I will now be using that site’s dollar values to select my players of the day.

Paul turns to breakout stud Tyson Ross and returns to old favorite Kole Calhoun.

My DraftKings plays of the day for Friday, August 15th.

PITCHING
Tyson Ross ($9,400 SD at STL) – Ross has emerged as a fantasy stud this year. After battling home/road split issues earlier this season, he’s worked his road ERA down to 3.48 by allowing two or fewer earned runs in each of his past four roadies, including one in Coors. He has been a bona fide ace at home, taking full advantage of Petco Park to the tune of a 1.94 ERA with a 1.00 WHIP and 9.4 K/9 in 88 1/3 innings. The Cardinals offense can’t get on track this year with a .677 OPS against righties, good for 21st in the league. It’s down to .657 in the second half, also slotting 21st in the league.

The Phillies' second baseman hasn't hit well since the beginning of June, but Paul likes his matchup today.

DraftStreet offers one of the best lineup constructions in the industry allowing for three pitchers, two starters and a starter/reliever. Additionally, they don’t overvalue the win as it is worth just two points. The rest of the scoring and roster setup can be viewed here if you aren’t already familiar with it.
